The Art of the Condolence Letter

Saturday, March 30, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

We all struggle to find the right words. We want to convey sympathy, admiration, and support. And we want to express ourselves as well as possible. Why not take inspiration from another time? Condolence letters of the nineteenth century, when death was ever present, were mainstays of life—missives of comfort written straight from the heart. Death educator Amy Cunningham will lead a practical guide to crafting messages that heal and knowing what’s best left unsaid. Along the way, she’ll share condolences written by luminaries including Thomas Jefferson, Emily Dickinson, Queen Victoria, Marcel Proust, and Ernest Hemingway.

Join death educator Amy Cunningham for an engaging discussion of how shrouds and garments have been used for over a millennia in cultures across the globe. She’ll also explore present-day, eco-friendly shroud making, including the work of several clever designers who hope we'll start taking our final outfits as seriously as we select what we don every day.
